Installing and Using Cisco VPN for Remote Working

— Written By laptop

PLEASE NOTE: If you are working remotely through a secure, non-public, password-protected Wi-Fi network, you should not need to run a VPN. If for some reason you DO find yourself on a public/non-secure network, you need to install and run the VPN software if you plan to do any University-related work. 

If you need to set up and use the Cisco VPN for remote working, we’ve put together 2 quick guides to get you started.

If you DO NOT have the Cisco VPN installed on your computer, please start with the document titled “How to install the Cisco VPN.”

If you already have the VPN client on your work laptop, you can skip to “How to Use the Cisco VPN.”
